Chinese PV inverter company TBEA Xi’an Electric Technology is going to inaugurate its GW-scale factory in Bangalore on November 29. The facility—located in Bidadi, Bengaluru, around 5 km from Electronic City—will have PV inverter manufacturing capacity of 2 GW per annum.
TBEA India factory is part of the company’s plan to have three assembly lines in India. Initially, the company will start manufacturing with two assembly lines, each having 1 GW capacity. One will manufacture central inverters, in all ratings, for outdoor applications. The other will manufacture utility-type multi MPPT string inverters rated at 208 KW.
The third assembly line will be made operational at a later stage depending on the market trends.
Through the Bangalore factory, the company intends to serve its customers better with improved efficiency of service time achieved through localised production. Further, this will help it to produce PV inverters as per the market trend and technology.
With business in more than 20 countries, TBEA Xi’an Electric has exceeded 30 GW of installed capacity globally, with India alone accounting for over 3 GW.
The company also produces high-voltage static var generators, energy routers and flexible DC transmission equipment in addition to PV inverters.
With two R&D centers in Xi’an and Munich, Germany, it has successively undertaken more than ten major scientific research projects such as the National 863 Program and Science and Technology Support Program, presided over the drafting of many national standards and won more than 300 patents of various kinds.
Further, the company has independently developed a full range of 3-5000 KW grid-connected inverters, and launched a one-stop smart photovoltaic power station solution which can be applied in various environments.
